How to maintain outdoor solar lights

Solar outdoor lights are great for use around the home, in the garden, and on the patio. These are used by homeowners to provide light when they want to have late-night barbecues, when their kids are playing after dark, or when they just have to walk to their car to go somewhere.

The fact that they are solar means that they will save hundreds of dollars on their electricity bills each month. The initial cost of purchasing each of these lights will be much more than you’d like to spend. However, with proper care, they will last for many years.

Before you are ready to install them, you should use a soft cloth to dust each of the panels on the outside of the light. Even though they are brand new, they will have dust from inside the box on them. When they are covered in dust they will not be able to absorb the sun’s rays properly.

This simple cleaning should be done at the end and beginning of each season. Turn off the lights and use a soft cloth to clean the solar panels. As you clean them, make sure they are still in good condition and not broken in any way.

One way to tell if something might be wrong with outdoor sunlight is to see how bright it is when it’s on at night. If it appears to be dimmer than usual, the batteries may not be full or the panels may not be working as they should. Be sure to look for this after the light has received a full day of sun.

Outdoor solar lights can be used during all seasons of the year, except in areas that receive large amounts of snow. This snow will settle on top of the lights and so much cold could damage the glass and break it. Take it down before the first snowfall and store it in your garage or attic. Be sure to turn them off so as not to drain the batteries. Another way to extend their life is to use lithium or rechargeable batteries instead of the standard batteries you buy at most stores. This also reduces maintenance for them.
